Regular Supervision - Article 19

The Governing Body chooses instruments

Governments are involved in selecting the subject.

In accordance with the established practice, the Office consults informally with constituents to determine subject areas on which they would like to see information from member States under article 19 of the ILO Constitution. Governments are interested, for example, in better understanding the content of instruments and relevant national practices in other countries. Proposals are coordinated with other processes, such as annual recurrent discussions in the International Labour Conference, by virtue of the follow-up to the ILO Declaration on Social Justice for a Fair Globalization (2008), of ILO strategic objectives, namely: fundamental principles and rights at work; employment; social protection; and social dialogue and tripartism. Proposals before the Governing Body are available on the ILO website.
